A motorist has been banned for three years for drug-driving.

Brian Sproat, 29, of Moorfield Bank in Great Broughton, admitted the offence when he appeared at the magistrates court in Workington on Monday.

The court heard that Sproat had been driving a blue Peugeot 206 on Stanley Street in Workington on January 9 when there was cannabis in his system.

As well as the ban, he was handed a £280 fine and ordered to pay £85 costs and £32 victim surcharge.
